Security was called after Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack was abused in a bar in Aberdeen.

The 26-year-old was forced to leave Soul Bar after nearby drinkers started singing and hurling abuse at the midfielder.

Door stewards were then called to deal with an altercation after Jack left the premises.

It came just a week after the Aberdeen-born midfielder scored the winning goal to defeat Celtic in the derby.

Paul Clarkson, a director of PB Devco, which owns Soul, said: “A large crowd gathered and people mainly started singing towards Ryan then hurled abuse.

“Ryan and his family took themselves away from the situation and left the bar.

“An altercation then occurred with those who were involved in the abuse and the door stewards intervened.

“There was a bit of pushing and shoving which started but it was handbags.

“It’s disappointing this has happened and we certainly won’t tolerate anyone, no matter who it is, being abused in our bar.”

A statement from the bar added: “At Soul, the safety of our customers is our first priority.

“We have zero tolerance regarding abusive or offensive behaviour from or towards ANY of our customers.

“On reviewing CCTV, we can confirm staff and licensed door stewards correctly performed their duties as required.

“Our management and licensed door stewards have complete authority to evict any customers they feel is of an undesirable nature to be within our venue, so request that any customers who choose to join us behave in an appropriate manner.”
